Sausage & Pepper Bake

I think Sunday’s may be my “clean out the fridge” day. Sausage and Peppers…ish. I had some zucchini, cherry tomatoes and other odds and ends that needed using up, so in they went! 😂 I also made a light salad to go with it. ❤️  Sausage & Pepper Bake Servings: 5 Cooking Time: 45 MinutesContinue reading “Sausage & Pepper Bake”

Quick Marinara Sauce

This sauce is so versatile! It’s amazing in Steak Pizzaoila, Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti or Baked Ziti! While it may not be a traditional Italian recipe, its still delicious! This is the quick version of my from scratch version that takes upwards of 5 hours to make and uses fresh Roma tomatoes. But weeknights can beContinue reading “Quick Marinara Sauce”

All of the pancake-y deliciousness and none of the babysitting! You can substitute the gluten free flours with 3 cups of baking or A/P flour. 😊 I, unfortunately, cranked the heat up too high and it cracked. Bummer! I altered the recipe below with the proper baking temperature and time. ❤️ Strawberry Banana Sheet PancakeContinue reading “Strawberry Banana Sheet Pancake”

Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. 🤣 It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile ChickenContinue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”

Copycat Popeye’s Fried Chicken

One of my weaknesses is fried chicken and Popeye’s was my favorite, though I haven’t had it in years. Honestly, frying it fresh at home is so much tastier than the chicken that’s been sitting under a heating lamp for an hour plus. Adding spices to every layer is key and the buttermilk bath makesContinue reading “Copycat Popeye’s Fried Chicken”
